Domingo DeLeon
May 10, 1921 - May 15, 2018

Domingo DeLeon was born in Donna Texas on May 10, 1921 and passed peacefully in Bakersfield California on May 15, 2018 at the grand old age of 97.

Domingo was a Principal and Teacher for the Adventist School System for over 50 years. He loved his students and his life's work of guiding their futures. Domingo loved giving bible studies. Many souls were brought to Christ and several churches started through the loving efforts of Domingo and his wife Basilia. Domingo was a Pathfinder leader for many years and loved seeing children gain experience and skills while having fun. We will all miss Domingo's fun loving nature, quick smile, and great enjoyment of his large family.

Domingo was preceded in death by his wife Basilia Villanueva DeLeon. He is survived by his four children and their spouses, Moises and Marian DeLeon, Esther and Hughie Smith, Cora Jackson, and Anita and Roger Fenderson. Domingo is also survived by five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Domingo's final resting place will be beside his beloved wife Basilia in Mercedes, Texas. Our family would like to express our appreciation to the staff at "Summer Springs Board and Care" and to Optimal Hospice.
